Great place to relax and chill!

Johannesburg, South Africa

Friendly welcome, very attentive staff, great location and well appointed rooms. There is plenty to do if you want activity with a decent gym, sports facilities and a water sport centre where you can use windsurfing, supping, single or twin kayaks. Small point would be to take your own snorkel gear as the equipment available is somewhat ageing. Sunbeds are plentiful both around the pool and by the beach. Make sure you choose your spot early though as towels are used to reserve locations before breakfast. There is no kids club and, although there is a shallower pool element, it has water jets (more jacuzzi-like). Food is generally buffet style with plenty of variety. There are more formal eating options on certain days. A nice touch was a complimentary amuse-bouche and a shot of something strong when returning from a day at the beach. We did have a problem with blocked drains but it was fixed quickly and efficiently.

Beautiful location

London, England, United Kingdom

Had a wonderful two week stay at this hotel. Buffet at Breakfast and Supper had a wide range of choice everyday, the staff in the bar Selven and Yoan, were particularly courteous and helpful. However, The New Years eve party was hugely expensive with poor quality food, no alcohol on the table, baring in mind the tickets were £160.00 per person and the entertainment was basic. No drinks served for toasting both on arrival or after 12midnight. I definitely would recommend staying at the hotel, just don't attend the New Years Eve party. Do your research as I am sure there are better options available to celebrate this event. I would also discourage anyone from having the Lobster Extravaganza Meal, which is an extra but heavily promoted within the hotel and held at the back of the restaurant where the buffet takes place everyday. The food was appalling as was the service and extremely expensive per person. However the boat trip which lasted 5 hours we would highly recommend and a chat with Joelle who runs this particular area is worth doing.
